Ron Howard and Brian Grazer Spill Some ‘Arrested Development’ Season 4 Beans
We reported last year that Arrested Development producer Brian Grazer and producer/narrator Ron Howard are appearing onscreen in the show’s run of new Netflix episodes when they drop this May, but now, Howard and Grazer have revealed the nature of their on-camera roles. At a charity event this week, Howard and Grazer mentioned that the show’s plot this year will involve their production company Imagine Entertainment turning the Bluth family story into a movie. “One of the very last lines in the show was when [I say], ‘I don’t think [Arrested Development] is a TV show; maybe it’s a movie,'” explained Howard. “So in the new season, we create a heightened version of Imagine Entertainment.” Grazer added, “We talk about what could be our new Da Vinci Code.” There’s an episode that involves Michael Bluth getting stuck in an elevator with both Howard and Grazer, with Howard describing it as having “a lot to do with our inflated egos.” So, get ready for Arrested Development Season 4 to get super meta, everybody.
